Projects

American Pocket Almanacs, 1750–1830: By the 1770s, annually-published pocket almanacs had become common place items. Their often colourful bindings mark them as bibliographically distinct from their larger sheet almanac cousins, as does their diminutive size, which makes them better suited to accompanying their owner in daily life. By integrating the requirements of an almanac, a diary, and a notebook, the pocket almanac became a near-constant companion to their owner and represents a forgotten part of the everyday material and print cultures of late colonial and early Republic America. Building on research carried out during a Barra Foundation International Fellowship at the Library Company of Philadelphia (2018) and an Early Career Research Grant from the Research Society for American Periodicals (2020), this project aims to recover the cultural and economic significance of pocket almanacs through an investigation of their production, marketing, and consumption. Drawing on Jerome McGann’s (1991) notion of textual semiotics, the investigation encompasses the printed contents and the material packaging (typography, decorated paper covers), situating pocket almanacs as products printed, packaged and marketed with specific consumer groups in mind and as part of a nascent American consumer culture.
